Something Here is Not Like the Other

Singapore Airlines two painted A380s. Can you spot the difference? Images zoomed and scaled and courtesy of Yvan Panas and Helmut Schnichels.



First the logos go missing on the nacelles, now this. Who’s painting these, and which one is right?

    I think I saw a report that it was SIA who asked for the logos on the engine nacelles to be removed … and as I also think that painting’s done at Hamburg, I wonder if it’s not that the airline has decided it likes the look of the “forward-placed” name better, giving some more “dynamism” to the paint scheme.
    If the second aircraft was contracted out for painting, someone had better get their spray-gun out, smartish …
    Happy holidays, Mr. Ostrover – you’re always worth a read (as are your colleagues …).

    The actual “singapore airlines” names are in differnt places. A is more closer to the door and B is further from the door

    This is a rather silly post as its well known on the net they changed the location of the titles after the delivery of 9V-SKA.

    More silly Fung Shui stuff from the new boss.
